She's single, she's hot and she's on a hit show, so why not?

Hayden Panettiere is featured in the January issue of Esquire magazine, and in addition to her sexy shoot, she also tells a cute (and rated G!) joke in the video below.

The 22-year-old star also answered some questions about do’s and dont’s for guys. “You gotta be the right kind of guy to pull of sandals. You gotta have nice feet too, please guys!” she said. Hayden and boyfriend Scotty McKnight recently broke up, so we have to wonder who she'll date next...

So what did Ms. P have to say about her role as a scheming country diva on Nashville? "I kept apologizing after my first scene with Connie [Britton], saying, 'I don't mean it!'" She added, "It's fun. You get permission to be openly nasty and get away with it." And that's why we love her on the show!
